Preventative dental care is the practices and procedures that help prevent common oral health issues like cavities, infected teeth, and gum disease. Preventative care is the most important part of maintaining a healthy mouth and keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

Why is preventative dental care important?

It’s always easier to prevent oral health issues than it is to fix them. By brushing and flossing properly, for example, you can avoid gum disease and cavities entirely, and keep your mouth healthy.

Preventative care helps you save time and money, and ensures that your smile remains bright, healthy and beautiful. For these reasons, it’s important to see a preventative dentist in Winnipeg regularly.  If you can’t remember the last time you saw a dentist, it’s time to schedule a dentist appointment at Regent Avenue Dental Centre now.

Preventative care starts at home. To keep your mouth healthy and avoid things like gum disease and tooth decay, you need to take steps like:

  • Brushing 2-3 times per day for at least 2 minutes, and using a proper brushing technique
  • Flossing at least once per day to remove plaque and bacteria from between your teeth and gums

For more information and tips about at-home preventative care, consult with a dentist at Regent Avenue Dental Centre.

Your preventative appointments will usually include treatments like:

  • Teeth cleanings to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from your teeth and gums
  • Oral exams to check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer and more
  • Yearly x-rays to check for hidden oral health issues
  • Fluoride treatments to strengthen teeth
  • Dental sealants to prevent cavities

By seeing your dentist every six months and maintaining good at-home oral health habits, you can completely eliminate your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and other such oral health issues.
